Hey I don't think so it has a 2d cockpit, you can check it with the "S" key check CTRL+1 +2 till 9 or SHIFT+A

I'm not following you? The NGX has a full 2D cockpit and 3D virtual cockpit?

Well, if you are in 3d cockpit, then you cannot see the 2d cockpit. While on main 3d view, hit shift-A and that'll get you to the 2d cockpit. Then, as said, you can toggle the rest of the panels.Answer: It does have a 2d cockpit (except for the pedestal)

That changed some 7 years ago... you know, with the release of FSX.

2 keyboard shortcuts worth remembering !! F9 = VC F10 = 2D cockpit Fred.

Sorry. Complete minus 5 controls. Throttles, flaps, fuel cutoff, spoilers & trim. All of which are either controlled by autopilot/autothrottle, or controlled by key presses. Ie. F3/F2, F6/F7.

'S' to change a whole view. ie.S (Cycle view forward) = Internal views (ie. Virtual Cockpit and 2D Panels)S (Cycle view forward) = External ViewsShift + S (Cycle view backward) = Tower viewsEtc 'A' to change a view with-in a view.ie.VirtualCockpit

  • 1xA (Cycle view forward) = First Officer Panel
  • 2xA (Cycle view forward) = Overhead, not in order btw.
  • Shift + A (Cycle view backward) = 2D, but it depends on how far you are in the chain, try it and see if it works out.

It has a full 3D cockpit and incomplete 2D cockpit. The Center pedestal, for whatever crazy reason, is not modeled in 2D, so you'll have to use a key shortcut or go to the 3D cockpit to access the trim and fuel flow switches.

Indeed, there is no throttle/center console with the 2D panels. Also note that the 2D cockpit is designed for a 16:9 widescreen monitor. Although "functional" on a traditional 4:3 monitor, it may require adjusting panel positions and sizes to bring the 2D cockpits into proper aspect ratio. -Greg
